How are you guys attaching your RF circuit board?

I picked up a Hyperdyne labs RF circuit board and I'm getting ready to install it into a hollow RF. I was just wondering how people have attached the circuit boards in there without damaging the board.

My thought was to hot glue the leds from the inside, but I want to be able to secure the board as well. I don't want it just lying in there loose.

Just curious how others have gone about it.

Thanks..

could you post some pics of the set up, including the hollow topper it'll be going into?

and here's the RF. The lens is a solid block that I plan on carving out to fit the board

i don't think carving the block even needs to be part of the equation. bending the leads going to the led's (including the third one and that lego looking thing next to it)to make things fit seems a better idea. you said you were going to shorten the leads for the reds so that lets me think you have some knowledge of soldering, so just in case you break a solder point adjusting the other components you should be able to reattach.
